One of The Most underrated episodes from House!
20 December 2018 | by TheOny13See all my reviews

This was for me a truly gem of an episode. From start to finish I was hooked on and enjoyed basically everything from this episode. After the opening credits rolled and I saw "Six Months Later" I knew I was in for something special. It's astonishing to see that here on imdb this episode is very underrated although from a story perspective is one of the best episodes I've seen from House. It has a very intricate story that reveals more as the episode goes along and it pays off in the end. The performances were also great and the way it was filmed at times made it both funny and very interesting. This kind of episodes reminded me of the style of LOST episodes and how those were made (very cleverly by the way) by slowly revealing everything to the audience so that in the end the pay off was great and satisfying. Also by the end of this episodes there will be consequences, and I like that they broke the episodic and they are making a continuing story out of the events of this episode. Overall an extremely great episode that confirms once again that season 2 starts on fire compared to season 1.
